Considering how well the original Wii sold, this is pretty damn impressive. The trick now is to see if the company can keep the momentum up and not fall on its face like the Wii U.
The Friday through Saturday sales for Nintendo's latest console surpassed the first two-day sales for any system "in Nintendo history," according to tweets from the New York Times' Nick Wingfield. The info comes from an interview with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. It's far too early to tell how the Switch will do overall, or to compare it to Nintendo's last runaway success -- the Wii -- but, at this point, the future looks good for the portable home console.
